BioWare Mythic has announced an update for its free-to-play title Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes. Titled the Pyramid of Settra, players will be faced with a new scenario as well as new character. Players will battle for relics located throughout the new map which begin spawning in a central chamber and in the three adjacent anti-chambers. Teams which successfully deposit these relics into their designated treasure rooms while attacking opponents rooms will be victorious. The new hero joining the fray is Amenadresh the Steward, one of the last of the remaining Liche Priests. He’s an ancient sorcerer whose “powerful magic can both strengthen allies and unleash devastating curses.” Shots and a walkthrough video as well as a character spotlight video are below.

EA’s been getting a little too friendly with its axe lately, and word is, Mythic was one of the many developers that got in the way of said budding romance. In response, Mythic Executive Producer Jeff Hickman posted a letter to the community, wherein he restated his company’s commitment – first and foremost – to its games.
“With all that is going on within Mythic Entertainment and EA, I would like to take a moment to reinforce the studio’s dedication to both our games and our players. At Mythic, we remain committed to our games and the passionate people who play them – we’re going to continue to deliver the content and service that keeps you playing,” he wrote.
“We want to assure our community that we will maintain the same high level of customer support you’ve come to expect and continue to improve our games with an exciting schedule of patches, live events and new content.”
Keep on fighting the good fight, Mythic. Stormy weather’s ahead, but the ship’s certainly not underwater just yet.

Mythic has announced that Warhammer Online will host a special live event, Daemon Moon Rising, for a limited time during the 2009 Halloween season.
Daemon Moon Rising, will run in-game from October 23 through November 2 and will feature the Daemon Mask event quest, a new Daemonball Rally Public Quest, a special RvR scenario, and treats both fair and foul.
Here’s the description:
In Daemon Moon Rising, a fiendish sub-cult of Chaos artificers have bound savage daemons into innocuous carnival masks and smuggled them into the Empire. The Daemon Mask event quest will task players with collecting these possessed masks and defeating the daemons bound within. As a reward for halting the menace of the masks, players will receive a souvenir Daemon Mask and a chance to discover the rare and powerful Magus Daemonarium within a sack of sinister secrets.
The Daemonball Rally Public Quest will pit players of Order and Destruction versus one another in a battle to seize the Daemon Cradle and empower the essence of nightmares against their opponents. Players can also don their masks and participate in “Wake the Dead”, a special running of the High Pass Cemetery RvR scenario available to characters of all tiers during the Daemon Moon Rising live event.
Other rewards available include: the Fiendfang with bonus to healing, damage, renown, and XP; the Face of the Unborn mask; the Meatcleaver’s mask; the Face-Eater’s mask; the arcane Malleus Daemonarium; and special talisman components imbued with the might of Chaos itself.
